Saturday And Sunday Timeframe For The NHL Teams

Timeframe for today and Sunday.

from a post on Friday....

Saturday, June 17: Beginning of trade freeze, signing moratorium, deadline to submit protection lists

3:00 p.m. ET marks the beginning of a trade and waiver freeze that won’t be lifted until Thursday, the morning after Vegas’ picks are unveiled. Starting at this time, the 30 existing NHL teams will also not be allowed to sign or re-sign any players. The only exception here are the Golden Knights themselves, who can make trades with other teams, and begin negotiating with unprotected RFAs and UFAs on Sunday morning.

5:00 p.m. ET marks the deadline for teams to submit their expansion draft protections lists to the league office.

Sunday, June 18: Protection lists approved, UFA/RFA interview period opens

At 10:00 a.m. ET, the league is expected to make each team’s protection lists public as Vegas begins the selection process. At this time, Vegas can begin negotiating with pending RFAs and UFAs left unprotected by their clubs. If the Golden Knights sign one of these players in this window, it will count as their selection off that team’s roster for the expansion draft.
